Theater student is entire cast in one-woman play

April Foreman portrays "the girl" in "Alive a Little," which runs Thursday through Saturday, April 27-29, in Stone Soup Theater, 704 Oak St. in Bakersfield. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the curtain goes up at 8. Tickets are $7 general admission and $5 for students. Complimentary beverages are provided.

"Alive a Little" is the play-writing debut of CSUB graduate June Rich. The all-woman production ­ Rich is producing and directing it, and Ramona Elsberry is the set designer ­ chose the intimate Stone Soup Theater, which seats 80, for the production in part because of the intimacy of the story.

"It's the story of a young woman who's trying to figure out life and make sense of it, but in a funny way," Foreman said. "She's an interesting woman."

Foreman has appeared in several CSUB and Stars Theater Restaurant productions. She portrayed Lady Macbeth in "Macbeth" in CSUB's spring 1998 production, and also appeared in Stars' production of "Tony and Tina's Wedding." She reprises the role of Brooke that she first played in CSUB's production of "Noises Off" in Stars' upcoming production of the renowned comedy that opens in May.

Foreman graduates from CSUB in June, and plans on pursuing an acting career in Los Angeles.
